Mushroom and Rosemary Pizza Topping

I love pizza, and Kim O'Donnel, in her cookbook, The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook" created this perfect, combination. In the Pacific Northwest, when the Black Trumpet Mushrooms in season, then you have pizza magic.


1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook over medium heat, allowing the brown, 5-7 minutes. Add the onion, stirring to mix with the mushrooms, and cook for about 3 minutes.

2. Stir in the garlic and rosemary and cook for 1-2 minutes, adding 2 tablespoons of water if the mixture is sticking. Add the salt and season with the pepper to taste.

3. Cover the dough with your choice of cheese, following by the mushroom topping.

4. Place in the oven and bake as directed for the pizza dough recipe.

5. Garnish with Parmigiano-Reggiano just before serving.
